REST sailing route
Visit some of the best places in Adriatic Sea
During this year one week program we will show you some of the most beautiful and wild places in the Adriatic Sea. REST sailing route will lead us to Northern Adriatic islands of Silba, Olib, Premuda, Kornati archipelago and Dugi otok. Sandy beaches, cocktail bars, amazing couisine, very warm crystal-clear sea and perfect Adriatic summer weather will make sure you’ll remember it for the rest of your life!
Saturday, 17th of August – Biograd na moru
We’ll start our sailing experience in the lovely city of Biograd na moru in Marina Kornati. The reception desk will welcome you after 4pm when the first yachts will be ready for boarding. You will have the late afternoon free to settle in, do the grocery shopping, relax and bond with your new sailing team. In the evening we will stay in the marina and mingle on the boats.
Sunday, 18th of August – Wild bay on island Sestrunj
On our first morning, we’ll have time to enjoy an easy breakfast and coffee and do some final shopping. When the wind builds up, we’ll sail to the north to island Sestrunj, where we will anchor in the raft. We’ll reward ourselves with afternoon drink in the crystal clear wild bay, where we’ll spend the rest of the evening and chill on the boats. Let’s see what the first night on the sea will bring. 🙂
Monday, 19th of August – Little island Galijica
Could you imagine a better start of Monday morning, than diving in the warm Adriatic sea? Trough the day we will visit the Jugoslavian National Army submarine bunker and set the sails towards tiny little island Galijica, where we’ll spend the rest of the evening. But that’s not all for the day. We are preparing a sunset surprise, followed by the party of the week. Remore little island, summer sky full of stars, dance floor under the trees, DJ, international Rotaract family, do we need to name some more reasons why this will be the evening to remember?
Tuesday, 20th of August – Port of Sali, Dugi otok
On Tuesday we will continue our route to the south and sail along beautiful and diverse coast od Dugi otok. Like every day, we’ll have enough time to stop for a swim during the day. In the afternoon we will moore in the cosy city of Sali. It will offer you typical Adriatic cuisine restaurants, grocery shop and other facilities, including toilets and showers in the marina. After two intensive nights, we’ll spend an easy evening in the bar located just next to the yacht’s moorings.
Wednesday, 21nd of August – Island Levrnaka, Kornati
Morning coffee just in front of the boats and fresh bread sounds like a good start of the day. As on every REST sailing trip in the region so far we will sail to the National park Kornati, which is probably one of the most beautiful places in the Adriatic sea. During the day you will have a chance to visit some of many of Kornati attractions – remainings of the fortress, film industry coulisse village from the ’60s, 18th-century lighthouse, walk to the firefighter’s memorial park with monumental stone crosses or simply chill on the anchor in one the bays.
In the late afternoon, we’ll moor on island Levrnaka with magnificent president Tito’s sandy beach Lojena and one of the best views over the Kornati islands. Later in the evening, we’ll gather at dinner in the local restaurant above the bay and enjoy domestic and traditional dalmatian cuisine.
Thursday, 22th of August – Island Smokvica, Kornati
On Thursday we’ll continue to the south and enjoy some downwind sailing through Kornati islands. The day will be free for the crews to choose howto enjoy last full day in the wild nature as they want. Stops for swimming, lunch in any of the restaurants in the area or simply sailing in between the islands will be just some of the options. During the afternoon we’ll anchor in the raft in the south of Kornati islands and let’s see what the last evening under the summer sky will bring. 😉
Friday, 23nd of August – Biograd na moru
We will wake up admiring Kornati islands in all of their beauty and a refreshing morning swim will make your day. We will stay in the bay until midday and during the afternoon finish our sailing trip back in Biograd na Moru. Some water activities and swimming during the day will of course not be left out. But don’t be afraid, there will be one more thing waiting for us – Farewell dinner* in Carp I More in Biograd city centre, where we will taste some typical Mediterranean cuisine and ambient. And as it will be our last evening together, we will make sure, to make it an unforgettable one!
Saturday, 24th of August – Check out
All good things cometo an end and so will REST 2019. We will have to leave our boats by 9 am and skippers will take care of check-out procedures. We will meet for the coffee and brunch, which will be the last act of REST 2019 trip. But even now, before the trip, we are sure new friendships and all the memories will stay with us forever!
